Go to The Home Depot

Home improvement items may not seem like the most exciting gifts ever. But the deals on appliances, tools, gardening, lighting and other household needs can make any homeowner smile. Gift options extend to the patio and the backyard too. There’s something for everyone, whether they’ve been naughty or nice.

Hobbies and Crafts

Go to Michaels

Those who like to create things know that supplies are the backbone of any project. Hobbyists and craft lovers flock to Michaels expecting what they need will be there. The online Cyber Monday specials should help fill your online shopping cart, and get the creators on your list started on their next project.

Knickknacks and Afterthoughts

Go to Dollar Tree

Forget about going to a drugstore to pick up tape, batteries, candy or any of a thousand other items that you might need for wrapping presents and stuffing stockings. Dollar Tree has all that in bulk, and it’s priced to move faster than Santa and his reindeer. This is the place to go for a lot of the little things.


Go to Netgrocer

Big holiday meals often begin with a trip to the grocery store. But they don’t have to. Netgrocer has everything you need to put food on the table, including natural, organic and Kosher options. And they’ll ship it to you anywhere in the country via FedEx.

Gift Cards

Go to Plastic Jungle

This jungle of gift cards has something for every type of person on your shopping list. The already discounted prices fall even further when Cyber Monday rolls around, so get there early to find exactly what you want. And come back after the holidays to trade in any unwanted gift cards.
